8 oz pour on draft. Good beer overall but the cinnamon dominated too much for me and the chile added some bite on the back end. Had it a long with Sump and honestly preferred the Sump more.

2014 bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark black with a 2-inch brown head. Smell was cinnamon, some vanilla, and a hint of black licorice. Taste was also very cinnamon forward, got some vanilla and a little chocolate, but mostly cinnamon with a late chile and alcohol burn. Mouthfeel was great with spices tickling the Rouge and a good body. Overall this was a good beer, but too cinnamon dominated to call it great.
